Just a simple post this morning of a female Cassin’s Finch I photographed last May in Clark County, Idaho. She is much duller than the male Cassin’s Finches are but I think she is beautiful just the same.
Last Saturday I posted a Pine Siskin which looks similar to this female Cassin’s Finch but the bill on a Cassin’s Finch female is much larger and thicker than a Pine Siskin’s and female Cassin’s Finches will not show any yellow on the wingbars. There are other differences in plumage patterns as well.
I hope that this year I can get a photograph of a male and female in the same frame but the day I photographed this one she was the only Cassin’s Finch in sight.
Life is good.
